I like food (in chicago)

The only picture I got from Chicago Diner
Chicago has some of my favorite vegan spots. Somehow I didn't get a picture of my food and the very best one, Chicago Diner. You guys, cookie dough peanut butter shake!! There were a few other places we didn't even go to this time. We did go to Native Foods twice though. We have gone to one in CA before and thought it was ok. I really liked it this time. They also were featuring a new menu. My nephew was bummed the reuben wasn't on the menu anymore but they said other locations are still serving it.
 Native Foods- rockin moroccan (tofu, moroccan sauce, grilled veggies, steamed quinoa, raisins and toasted almonds), sesame kale macro (tempeh, pickled red cabbage, short grain brown rice, red beans, garlic kale, sweet potatoes, cucumber wakame salad and tahini sauce) and Elinor got the mac n cheese.

 twister wrap with baby green avocados, cucumber salsa, chipotle sauce with crispy native chicken. 
peanut butter parfait. Dave and I split this and we both wished it was bigger.
chocolate cupcake. She didn't share.
 Native Foods always has an awesome recipe on their wall. I can't wait to try this one out

 West Town Bakery and Diner- Vegan S'mores pancake. I remember getting these last time and they were awesome. This time I wasn't too into them. They were too rich. Elinor loved them though. I didn't realize until now that other pancakes could be made vegan. You just have to ask the server.
 biscuits and gravy. They were a little spicy but super good.

 We stopped by La Colombe which is funny because it is a Philly coffee that we use at home.


  1. I've never been to Chicago, always wanted to. This looks like am an awesome restaurant!!!

  2. Chocolate cookie dough macaroons... really?!! I have never been to chicago but now its on my list!

  3. That all looks sooooooooo good. You know who has a great Rueben? Carlino's.

  4. Oh my gosh! These all look amazing!! And your little one vs. that chocolate cupcake is so stinkin' cute!!

  5. I'm taking a picture of our babies in your last picture!
